Were they just that bad, or there some sort of vetting process they need to go through?
Yes ......just kidding. Patience man. The entries have to be looked at by the Admins first to make sure they fill the requirements and are within the rules. If they just showed up without consideration, and members saw illeagel entries, there would be chaos. They also have in the past given the members ample time to fix their entries. This may or may not be the case this time, but in any event. Have faith. I entered my 5 so far all in one night and also wondered why only one had been listed as Submitted. Relax, this is the Colossal Castle Contest. The voting will take some time to process as well.
